Big crowds turn out at Offroad

A BIG crowd turned out for the Fraser Coast Offroad group’s first short course event at Hornes Road, Dundowran, at the weekend in spite of the rain.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation will receive half the entry fee.

The Offroaders also gave an excited Wish Kid, Michael Galley, an experience of a lifetime in one of their offroad buggies.

When the clouds parted and the track started drying nicely the drivers knew there were only good times ahead for the event.
